US Dollar Range-Bound as S&P 500 Soars Past 1600 Figure

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

THE TAKEAWAY: The US Dollar remains locked in a familiar range while the S&P 500 has finally found the momentum to convincingly break above the 1600 figure.

US DOLLAR TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices recovered after putting in a Hammer candlestick above support in the 10424-28 area marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement and the March 22 close. Near-term resistance is at 10488, the 14.6% level, with a break above that targeting the March 11 high at 10576. Alternatively, a drop below 10424 exposes the 38.2% Fib at 10428.
